Sometimes, you just want a taco.

And you want it fast.

And you want it good.

Well, that’s when you visit Taqueria El Pueblito in Mercado San Agustín. The walk-up restaurant isn’t fancy — you order through a window and eat off paper plates — but it’s got all kinds of mouthwatering Mexican favorites. The tacos are a must eat.

On a recent visit, a soft corn tortilla cradled strips of green chiles, pleasantly but not overly spicy, crunchy corn niblets, onion and shredded cheese all bathed in a light creamy sauce. The rajas con crema taco ($2) was vegetarian perfection.

Meat eaters will enjoy the chicharron ($2.50), chunks of porky goodness bathed in a red chile sauce and smothered in fresh pico de gallo.

Taqueria El Pueblito, 339-9336.
